First off... forgive the red eye in the pics. I don't have time today to adjust the photos... sorry. This is just an update on my kiddos... I know you're all waiting on pins and needles to know what they are up to. So, I will put your minds at ease... Little Bug is doing so awesome! Each spring he gains a lot of language skills and then they disappear over the summer. This year we are seeing more progression than we ever have. This morning he signed "Mom" and "Dad" and "baby". Not sure where the baby came from... maybe he was referring to Baby Girl... yeah. That's it. Or maybe, because I pigged out over the weekend, I look like I'm going to have another baby. The possibilities are really endless! Moments before I snapped this photo he had all of those toys in his hands. Not just the two he's holding, but the other Thomas, the plastic egg, the monkey, the lion, the ball, the block AND the towel that's around his feet. Wahoo for the opposable thumb!
Red came home the other day from school all upset. Turns out that some kid at school punched him in the nose. Sigh. So tired of dealing with bullies with this kid. Then on Saturday he went out to play with the neighborhood kids and they formed a club - which is always a BAD thing because someone always gets left out. This time, the unfortunate soul was Red. He is not part of the bratty, snotty, obnoxious kid club. Hmm... maybe it's not as bad as I thought. On a good note, he has been invited to a birthday party for one of the kids from church. And he is more than excited about it! So, that will be a fun thing to look forward to :) Oh, and in this pic, he is not wearing lipstick. It is frosting. Someone brought cupcakes to school and apparently I have failed miserably in the manners department because he was covered in green frosting. And quite pleased about it too...
Baby Girl still can't get he/she right and it is making Hubby CRAZY. Yesterday he followed her around correcting her. He said "he" so many times it started to sound like laughter... "He... he... hehe... hehehehehehehehe..." No wonder she's confused! She let me tie her hair yesterday and then got in the car, tipped her head back and wiggled. Making a LOVELY mess. She looked like a tumble weed by the time we got to church. Fortunately, I had brought an elastic for just such an occasion. So, I untied all her hair and put it in a pony tail. Sigh. I did get a picture before church though...As for me, I'm tired. It's a rainy cold day - which is rare in these parts. It makes me want to curl up in a blanket with a good book, a cup of cocoa, and just relax. Too bad it's Monday and I have laundry and general insanity cleaning to do. It's all good... right? Please... someone tell me it's all good... :)
